Things to Keep in Mind When Traveling with Your Pet

Last updated 6 years ago

Family vacations provide an opportunity to bond with your loved ones. If your family includes any four-legged members, then you can let them enjoy the experience by bringing them along! Planning a pet-friendly vacation may require a little more time than planning a traditional vacation, but you can make the process easy by keeping these factors in mind:

Choose a pet-friendly hotel. Finding a hotel that accepts pets should be your top priority. A lot of hotels only accommodate humans. You should look for a pet-friendly hotel like The University Inn at Emory. Pets are always welcome in our Atlanta hotel, allowing you to bring the whole family along for your next vacation.

Visit your veterinarian. Make sure that your pet is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations and that he is in good health before traveling. Your veterinarian may also be able to make travel recommendations depending on where you are going and how you are getting there.

Pack for your pet. After packing for yourself, you can start packing for your pet! Your furry family member will need his own items to keep him happy, healthy, and safe during your vacation. Pack a bag for your pet that includes vaccination documentation, medication, and food, if possible. You should also bring a food dish, waste bags, toys, and other items that make your pet feel comfortable.

Keep an eye on your pet at all times. Once you arrive at your pet-friendly Emory hotel, you will need to keep your pet with you at all time. You should bring a high-quality leash that can easily be held while handling suitcases or bags.
